I didn't get to see the episode, but am glad it came down to Lalia and Joey in the finals. Both are good chefs and fun to watch. I still remember when he nearly fainted (at least played it) when they announced him safe for grilling a simple - but CORRECT - grilled cheese sandwich with the veggie face on top. She also was fun to watch because she celebrated her successes and failures in a fun way.
I like Judy Gold as a comedian, but I don't know about her cooking so I can't say much. Would've rather she finished ahead of Johnny Weir though - he annoys the daylights out of me.
